    Could you put the cardboard down first and then the mesh wire on top of that?

  10. L O F E N O I A L O F on March 14, 2019 at 8:51 pm

    What time of year is the best to start these beds ? Spring ? Winter ? Thank you

  11. gizmohawaii on March 14, 2019 at 8:51 pm

    UPDATE, Caution all !!
    This did not work for me by adding 3 layers cardboard to hold back the grass and weeds. After a year or so they all came through !

    супер так держать

  14. Super Geek DJ on March 14, 2019 at 8:53 pm

    When should you be putting the cardboard down? A few months before you transfer seedlings in or can you build the whole bed and put down cardboard right before you put in the seedlings

    I have 1000 sq feet how to design n wood is very expensive in mumbai

  16. Jessica March on March 14, 2019 at 8:55 pm

    Has anyone tried using a dremel on the hardware cloth? I can’t use the snips due to rheumatoid arthritis.

  17. L O F E N O I A L O F on March 14, 2019 at 8:56 pm

    How about leveling the ground first ? Does leveling really matter ? Thanks !

  18. sheba kuriakose on March 14, 2019 at 9:00 pm

    Just curious to know if you tried untreated lumber from Home Depot….I know it usually runs very expensive but I bought the untreated cedar that was around 37 bucks for 11 dollars approximately on clearance….this works out cheaper than ready made ones that are much thinner. I check their clearance often and run into good ones occasionally.

  19. ElizaUK Samad on March 14, 2019 at 9:00 pm

    I’m following your instruction for my neighbour hopefully we’ll let you know how we get on

  20. BigMacBook1300 on March 14, 2019 at 9:01 pm

    Next time lay the what you call hardware clothe down first then move the raised bed on top of it. Smarter not harder.

  21. JulieAnkha N. on March 14, 2019 at 9:01 pm

    I have never seen the raised bed mix at HDepot. Ill have to ask them about it.

  22. Seiji on March 14, 2019 at 9:03 pm

    I would have just picked up the raised beds, and laid the hardware cloth underneath. That way the sides would hold down the hardware cloth ends. I would even staple the hardware cloth onto the bottom of the raised beds wood. It’s just neater that way, and you wouldn’t have to cut as much.

  23. My Outdoor Foodstore on March 14, 2019 at 9:04 pm

    GDAY from Australia, I must say a fantastic design and set up guys. I am impressed with the detail you guys have done in your video. We are inspired by your work and systems.
    could i interest you in viewing my AUSSIE GARDEN BED and let me know what you think? https://youtu.be/46t5hlh9zk4

  25. KA17 on March 14, 2019 at 9:05 pm

    Another great video, thanks!

  26. Primal Concrete Sledge on March 14, 2019 at 9:06 pm

    Those pre-feb beds generally suck. Low quality, flimsy. Learning how to construct one’s own out of better raw material is where it’s at!!

  27. Brhtu Seasonone on March 14, 2019 at 9:07 pm

    will ur cloth gets rusted in time?

  28. Justin Pettit on March 14, 2019 at 9:07 pm

    Great video. You really showed all the necessary steps to beginning gardening for those of us that are new to it.

  29. Flavius Nita on March 14, 2019 at 9:08 pm

    My Friend, use fiber glass net (the cheap one used in fassades în construction). Is as good as steel wire net! No pest comes thru!

  30. Johany De la cruz.S on March 14, 2019 at 9:09 pm

    Muy bonito, felicidades

  31. Oochakaballa on March 14, 2019 at 9:12 pm

    STAPLES!!! >.< NO! Just overlap the cardboard, do NOT staple them together. The cardboard disintegrates, and you would have staples in the ground forever! Some child in the future will get one in their foot. Staples will not disintegrate for decades!

  32. Lynn Nguyen on March 14, 2019 at 9:13 pm

    Oh wow I never thought that you can purchase pre-made raised bed, and super easy to reassemble. All this time I thought that I have to buy woods, cut and make it from the scratch. This is very helpful information thank you so much !

  33. L O F E N O I A L O F on March 14, 2019 at 9:13 pm

    Do you have videos explaining the drip system and pole installations ? Thanks !

  34. derbeno on March 14, 2019 at 9:14 pm

    How would you stop roots invasion from adjacent trees and plants?

  35. Sashi Lemla on March 14, 2019 at 9:20 pm

    it takes a lot of money I guess

  36. Savi ramurthy on March 14, 2019 at 9:21 pm

    I learn a lot from your videos. Thank you! What soil would you recommend for indoor plants?

    Good Morning! I am new to gardening and will be getting started based on this video. I really appreciated the holistic approach to calling out everything you need to know about designing a successful garden. Thank you for your hard work here!

  43. Seiji on March 14, 2019 at 9:29 pm

  44. Brhtu Seasonone on March 14, 2019 at 9:30 pm

  45. JuicingGardener (Sheryl Mann) on March 14, 2019 at 9:31 pm

    Hi! how have these raised beds held up for 4 years? Do you still recommend them? i’ve moved to SoCal and am starting from scratch. thanks!!
    Sheryl

  46. Forest Plum on March 14, 2019 at 9:33 pm

    Would it be good to put two pieces of metal cloth if very concerned or is that unnecessary?

  47. OrganicBackyardGardening on March 14, 2019 at 9:35 pm

    Great video! Excellent tip on the wire mesh on the bottom of the bed. I’ve been dealing with voles this year, after years of gardening, I’ve never had a issue like this, they just came out of nowhere eating the plants from the inside out.
